Planet with my first attempt at procedural clouds, and a spherical volume scatter atmosphere. Planetary texture map is my original work.
I am continuing to expand and broaden my Blender skills. While Blender still gives me issues at times, it has improved enough that I can see this taking it's place alongside proprietary software in the industry. I admit, I was part of the "Hate Blender" crowd for a long time, so I am surprised and pleased by this turn of events. I never thought I would become a Blender user, but none of us ever knows where the future will take us.
